Lessons are taught according to the real PE programme. Please view our Curriculum Overviews to see the scope and sequence of lessons taught - allowing a progression of skills taught across the school. Through our PE teaching we aim to ensure that all pupils:
Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
Are physically active for sustained periods of time
Engage in competitive sports and activities
Lead healthy, active lives and create a lifelong love for physical activity
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the School Games Gold Mark Award for our commitment to the development of competition across our school and into the community. Pupils are encouraged to lead healthy and active lives through PE lessons linking with work in PSHE. This is also promoted through our annual Health and Wellbeing Week and through initiatives such as ‘the daily mile’ and ‘Walk to School weeks.’
We have been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark for our commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport. Pupils are actively encouraged to take part in a wide range of sports clubs including multi-sports, Rugby Tots, basketball, football, netball and gymnastics. Pupils engage in competitive sports and have the opportunity to represent our school at local, regional and national competitions. This includes opportunities for pupils with special educational needs to participate in inclusive competitions including the annual New Age Kurling Competition.
How is the Curriculum planned?
EYFS follows the programme real Foundations. Within this programme the children will be focusing on six skills within physical activity (personal, social, cognitive, creative, physical and Health & fitness). The lessons are taught thematically, which means they are based around a story that the children read in class and the activities reflect those that are found within the book.
Year 1 & 2 continue this thematic approach in which their PE lessons follow on from a book they are reading within class. They also focus on the same six elements that EYFS work on - these six areas are the same in each Key Stage to ensure continuity.
Year 3 - 6 focus on one particular skill each term: personal, social, cognitive, creative, physical and Health & fitness. The skill is taught through a series of activities and games, none of which are traditional sports. The reason behind this is to ensure every child is able to engage in the activity, as often children who do not enjoy a particular sport will then not enjoy the six/seven weeks we focus on it.
